Supplies needed for Bartholomew Humane Society

The Bartholomew County Humane Society is looking for your help with their Santa Paws Holiday Drive.

They are looking for donations to take care of the pets they shelter including dry dog food, dry cat food, non-scoopable clay litter and even cleaning supplies like paper towels, laundry detergent, liquid hand soap and heavy duty trash bags. They also need machine washable blankets, baking soda, copy paper, hand sanitizer, pet bowls, tape and bleach.

The Bartholomew County Humane Society houses about 1,300 animals a year and the cost to prepare an animal for adoption ranges from $153 on average for a dog to $114 for a cat.

You can drop off any donations to Athens Animal Clinic or Best Friends Animal Healthcare in Columbus.
